season 2023 cruise

2023/24 Cruise Season
Radio Sintonia:

27 ships will dock in the new cruise season in Puerto del Rosario before the end of this year.

Before the start of the new cruise season, the Councilor for Tourism of the City of Puerto del Rosario, Juan Jiménez, met with Julie Williams, the head of the shipping companies that serve cruise ships arriving in the capital of Majorera.

Throughout the meeting, very important issues for the municipal management of the tourist destination Puerto del Rosario were discussed, such as the possibility of including tourist information in all cruise ships arriving in Puerto del Rosario or the application of tourist information and signage based on augmented reality that is available to cruise passengers and that allows them to obtain all the information of the destination immediately in four languages.

After reviewing the previous season, a review of the schedule of ships that are scheduled to arrive during this 2023/2024 season was made.

Mayor David de Vera stressed that "the arrival of cruise ships is a strategic element to boost the economic development of the capital of Majorera and the rest of the island, being the main entry point for tourists. This factor increases services to make Puerto del Rosario friendlier for neighbors and tourists," said the municipal councilor.

For his part, the Councilor for Tourism, Juan Jiménez, informed the head of the consignee companies of the actions that are scheduled in order to energize the city, among which the continuity of the craft and gastronomy market, performances by folk groups, exhibitions of native sports, guided tours of the city by participants in PFAE courses, as well as the availability of the new Interpretation Center of the Lime Kilns, which can be visited during the stopovers of the cruises.

The forecast of cruise arrivals until December 31 is 27 ships among which vessels such as the Aida Cosma, which is the most modern ship in the Aida Cruises fleet. The season will begin on September 22 with the arrival of the Costa Fortuna of the Costa Cruises shipping company.

Finally, Jiménez took the opportunity to explain the creation of the new Municipal Tourism Council that will be constituted in the near future and that aims to have the participation of representatives of all sectors affected by tourism, inviting Julie Williams to be part of it on behalf of the cruise shipping companies.
